‘Fast & Furious 6’ should easily retain its No. 1 spot at the North American weekend box office with ‘After Earth’ failing to justify Sony’s high budget expectations on its Friday debut.
The latest in the lucrative ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, which should have more staying power than its rivals over the remainder of the weekend, grossed $10.5m in line with expectations. This will leave Universal’s car action thriller around the $35m mark by Sunday night.
‘Now You See Me’ massively exceeded studio predications in opening on an excellent $10.05m to push ‘After Earth’ into third place. Boosted by a stellar cast, including Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson, and an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore, Louis Leterrier’s bank heist thriller seems set for a $28m opening weekend.
In the end, M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘After Earth’, starring the father and son pairing of Will and Jaden Smith, could only muster $9.8m. An average ‘B’ CinemaScore will not help word of mouth and the sci-fi action adventure will struggle to equal ‘Now You See Me’ over the three days.buy domperidone new zealandmotilium cheappurchase motiliummotilium buy uk
